Amazon Launches UK e-Cargo Bike Delivery Hub

Amazon has launched its first UK micromobility hub for e-cargo bikes, which will carry out more sustainable deliveries across Central London.

Amazon created the new hub in collaboration with the London Borough of Hackney. The company plans to make more than one million e-cargo bike deliveries each year to replace thousands of traditional van trips on London’s roads and help reduce traffic congestion.

E-cargo bikes from the new hub will join Amazon’s fleet of over 1,000 electric delivery vans operating in London. Together, the electric vehicles will make over five million deliveries a year across more than 10 percent of London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone.

John Boumphrey, UK Country Manager, Amazon said:

“Our new e-cargo bikes, walkers and growing electric vehicle delivery fleet will help us make more zero emission customer deliveries than ever before across London and the UK.”

These initiatives are in line with Amazon’s Shipment Zero mission that aims to deliver 50 percent of Amazon shipments with net-zero carbon by 2030 and 100 percent by 2040.

Cllr Mete Coban, Hackney Council Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, said:

“Tackling transport emissions is key if we’re to reach net zero. We’re really pleased to have worked with Amazon to support them to take traditional vans off the streets and replace them with e-cargo bikes. This will help to reduce emissions and improve air quality for people in Hackney and beyond.”

Amazon intends to launch additional e-cargo delivery hubs across the UK throughout 2022 to further expand its fleet of zero emission vehicles.
